A friend of mine was watching an eccentric creature go down the street, arrayed as one of the old Hebrew Prophets might have dressed. A He happened to know the man, slightly, and knew that he was a religious fanatic. Following him with eyes that betokened a great pity he said, half under his breath "It is v e r j strange, the some peoplf think they an making God hap py when t h e j are making SMITH themselves ridiculous!" Deep down inside the soul of every religious man is a desire to make a good impression on God. This is true of the man in the African jungle, with his voodoo charms, as it is also true of the doctor of philosophy in the modern seminary. The question arises, then, how can it be done? There are those among the devotees of all faiths who seem to believe that they can make themselves acceptable in the sight of God by a meticulous observance of ceremonies and ritual. Let there be no mistake about it. Ceremonies in religion have their place exactly as ceremonies in patriotic observances have. sake is as ineffectual in religion, as it is in patriotism. There is an old proverb to the effect that "patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels."' And it can be said with equal truth that ceremonial- ism in religion is as poverty- stricken in faith as in citizenship. All of us have known grafters who have been loud in their praise of the flag, and we have also known crooks who were "orthodox" in their religion. To be a master of ceremony requires much more than a perfect recitation of the creed, and a quick response to the "order of worship." These are the things that Jesus called "the outside of the cup." The ancient Jews worked the principle of ceremony to the limit. They burned rams by the ;o operate to this day. The fact :hat gives effectivenss to the sacrament of our Lord's Supper, is not the mode in which the rite is administered, but the spirit in which it is accepted. I happen to know a man who is very insistent upon certain doctrines. He takes great pride in the fact that he can "argue any man down" on the questions in which he so firmly believes. His conversation is liberally sprinkled with pious phrases, and assertions that sound devout. Unfortunately, however, he is about the most self-righteous in- whom * am ac- town he might have said "apples." It is easy to cover up a lot of our past, but it is never easy to conceal the inner desire by which we live. These are the things that make a good or bad impression on God. gion" with some one who fails to agree with arrogant, and tually abusive. him, he becomes on occasions ac- PlanGvil Defense Classes By MARY HUDELSON POMONA — Community classes in civil defense will be on five Tuesdays, beginning Feb. 19, at the home of Mrs. N. V. Hudelson from 1 to 3 p.m. According to Mrs. Rosalie Osburn, county health nurse, the course will stress making use of what one has on hand in meeting emergencies. There will be movies, instruc- thousands on tneir altars, in uie belief that if they burned a sufficient number, they could satisfy God's demands. The Jews of Jesus' day were forever washing their hands, in the belief that they could give God the impression of holiness t n isi*f> M v LllCICUjr « But great prophets like Isaiah and Jeremiah warned the nation that burning rams were of no avail if the nation were sinful. And Jesus warned the Jews of his day that clean hands meant nothing to God if the inner heart was unclean. The same principle continues And having had just a little experience with him, on one occasion, I am well assured that if I have a business deal with him I must read all the fine print. Piety and righteousness are matters of the inner heart. Somewhere in the scriptures we are warned that, whereas men take us on the basis of our appearances, "God looketh upon the heart." In discussing this matter of inner motives and desires, Jesus once said that you cannot hope to gather figs from thistles, and if he had been talking in our tion and practice on such topics as radioactive fallout and shelter, healthful living in emergencies, artificial respiration, bleeding and bandaging, fractures and splinting, transportation of the injured, burns, shock, nursing care of sick and injured, infant and child care and emergency childbirth. The course under the Franklin County Health Office is open to anyone in the surrounding area who is interested in becoming better informed about civil defense. Many HDU units are work* ing to enlist members. Everyone is welcome. If it is improper to display the American flag with the blue field and stars on the lower side, it is also improper to offer a careless worship to Almighty God.

First Over 40 Years of Continuous Service To The Ottawa Community Our Carload Buying Saves You Money helping Kansas develop and prosper Without a strong telephone system offering an array of specialized services, it would be impossible to attract new business and industry to Kansas. Nor could companies already located here continue to grow and prosper, without first-class telephone service. Providing this essential service is, however, only one way that Southwestern Bell contributes to the growth and development of Kansas. Here are some other ways: Jobs for 5800 Kansans who earn 131 million a year • Construction costs averaging $29 million annually for expansion and improvement • Local telephone taxes amounting to $8Vi million a year • Additional local purchases made by the company and its 5800 employees. Providing jobs for Kansas people . . . helping pay for essential community services through taxes... spending millions to make telephone service better to serve you better... all solid evidence of how the telephone business contributes to Kansas' development and prosperity. Looking at it another way, Southwestern Bell's role in the state's economy equals, each year, the impact of several new large industries locating plants in Kansas. And we intend to continue our construction program year after year as long as it is economically sound to do so. 1 i SOUTHWESTERN BELL Making telephone service bettor to serve you bettor
